Mexico’s Colima volcano has erupted spewing smoke up to 2,500 metres into the air.

Sometimes called the “Fire Volcano” it lies in the south west of the county. It’s been showing some activity for the past two months, coating nearby villages in a blanket of ash, prompting evacuations.

Officially known as the Colima Volcano, it was previously active in January and is part of the Pacific’s Ring of Fire.

Mexico has 3000 volcanoes but only 14 are active.
